Commitment to Action

Making 'Never Again' a Reality

Commitment by

STAND Technologies

In 2010, STAND committed to mobilize over 50 STAND student chapters as well as the anti-genocide movement at large to obtain House and Senate co-sponsors for comprehensive genocide prevention legislation. STAND's Student Leadership Team will partner with the Genocide Intervention Network advocacy staff to identify important Senators and Representatives that have served on relevant committees and who have championed similar issues. STAND will then reach out to and support student activists in these districts and states to lobby for a bill on comprehensive genocide prevention. STAND will train these activists on effective lobbying and prepare them to host in-district meetings. To complement the activists' efforts, STAND will also launch letter-writing campaigns, national call-in days, and high-visibility events.
